Gerber Suspension® multi-tool for daily wear. Most knife I can carry at work without running afoul of Security (due to blade length), and more comfortable to use than most other multi-tools. Boye folding knife with marlinespike when kayaking.

I used to have a Micro Mini Leatherman on my key ring. Was very handy for almost anything and I had had it for a long time, until our last trip to the UK. Well you know the end of this story, there went my favorite knife. I do have a backup a 4" two bladed Buck/with rose wood handle.

Wow, and thanks everyone for your feedback, pics and links.
I'm now convinced that not only do I need a good pocket knife, but a multitool too!

Me too, the Twitch is the best knife I have ever carried. Many of the stainless steel blades are hard to sharpen but at least they don't hold an edge. Not so with the Twitch, it takes an edge like carbon steel and holds it through heavy usage. As a bonus the Twitch II is easy to open with one hand, is light weight and slim.

For just a knife, no other functions, I like the Benchmade Osborne flip knife with a pocket clip.

I've carried a Buck 112 folder for 30+ years that is small enough to carry in your pocket instead on your belt. When out in public it's in the pocket.

SPYDERCO, with a 4" serrated blade. Seems heavy at first, but as it is slim it is unnoticeable until needed. Stainless. Same one fifteen years or more.

Been awhile so I just wanted to make an update on what I actually ended up with in this search for a pocket knife.
Got a Smith's Pocket Pal knife sharpener.
A small Benchmade folding pocket knife for everyday carry.
And just recently purchased a multitool. I got the Leatherman Charge TTi.
I always shied away from the multitools and thought of them as a toy. But since some knowledgeable people on here said they used a multi tool, I decided to try one.
It's become my go to tool for minor repairs for the trailer and truck. I added a small pen light to the sheath and just ordered the bit kit and bit driver extention.
I won't be carring around the multi tool all the time, but it's nice to have in the trailer for quick repairs without the hassle of digging thru a tool box looking for the right tool. By the way, the multi tool has a very nice knife blade in it too.

I carry a Gerber with the pocket clip and finger hole, nice and light. Multi tools are too heavy so I put one in the trailor and one in the TV.

As we were toodling thru Ioway on our way to Colorado a few weeks ago, stopped to get a coffee and saw these in a Casey's General Store.

Just about 3 inches long.

Perfect for the 8 & 10 year old grandsons. Had to have them.

Nothing wrong with the Leatherman. They make a fine quality tool and I have one. But I like my Swiss Army multi-tool too.

I'll bet that really made them happy. Grandma's always know what to get the kids.

Geez, I'm about as old as dirt and only now did I get my first multitool.

I have solid locking Puma and Sears utility knife for belt carry. A folding utility knife with pocket clip, Buck skinner with belt loop scabbard. I have lost or given away more than I can ever remember.
